New tune in tab- The Back of the Change House

I just put up a tab for a tune to share that I discovered this morning. It should be played fast, but I found the melody and the way it layed on the banjo to be completely mezmerising and engaging when played slowly and loosely. Although I recorded it this morning, I feel like am just starting to tap into it...being able to play it different each time by altering the phrases. A very free and creative feeling

It has lots of pulls and slurs in the phrasing, which is something I thing totally adds to the banjo character. Also, the way the notes cause the overtones to react ..... really nice, especially if you have a quality instrument. Haunting.
